GTX460 SLI Temperatures

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Heya,

Let me start off with saying: I sincerly hope that this is the correct forum to post this, as I was torn between this and the nVidia main forum. In the end however this looked more likely considering it's related to cooling, or rather, possible lack of cooling.

Now,
I recently upgraded my rig from a single GTX260 to dual GTX460s (the performance difference is ridicolous ).

I have done some testing about, and I am concerned about my temps.

Extra specifications:
* They are EXTREMELY close to each other. We're talking about maybe 3 mm between ( ).
* Both cards are overclocked to: 845/1890/2200.
* Fans on both cards at: 60%

I'll, just like MSI does, divide them up as GPU1 and GPU2.
Now, they idle as follows: GPU1 = ~29c and GPU2 = ~31c.
When playing SC2: GPU1 = ~62c and GPU2 = ~69c (max at 72c, never seen it go above 72 in games).

Are those temps normal?

Now, for something odd, they are idling, at normal temps. I then start MSN2011 and they go up to:
GPU1 = 44c and GPU2 = 51c. Excuse my language, but what the hell? How is this even possible?
I also get MSN temps when watching a movie with VLC (if that matters). Browsering etc etc gives normal idle temps.
Also, something that's odd: I have experienced this, I think about 2 times that my screen goes black and it stays that way, only way to get rid of it is a hard reboot. Is this overheat-related? Or do I have a dirty virus on my hands or something? As it only happens when I play.

Help me out here, and thanks in advance.

Your temps are great. No worries there. As for the other issue, not sure, but I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Your temperatures are fine, 460's withstand 100c+ in worst case scenarios.
